So this is our third month ttc. We bd’d October 9th and on the 15th I had a very, very tiny dot of pink spotting. Then Sunday after using the potty (haha) when I wiped, there was a very noticeable amount of brown mixed with cm (sorry so TMI). This morning I took a HPT and got a BFN though I figured it was too early, but it helps tie me over until after AF is due when I’ll test again. According to my fertility app, which has shifted a couple of times when documenting cm, it predicts AF is due 10/29. I’m not sure how accurate it is this month. I also never spot before a period. Can anyone relate? Im getting my hopes up and I shouldn’t!!
P.s. I don’t use opk’s but may start if this month is unsuccessful.

I guess you have irregular cycles? You can’t really have implantation bleeding 2 weeks before your period is actually due since ~2 weeks before is about O and it takes 7-8 days at least for implantation to happen. I suppose 6-7 days after O (assuming you O’d 10/9) is possible if it implanted super early you could have spotting. However, your period wouldn’t be due 10/29 it would then be due approx. 10/23. If you think it’s possible you O’d 10/9 then you should have a definite answer by testing 10/23. If it’s negative then you’re either not pregnant or you are wrong about when you O’d (meaning it’s probably not implantation bleeding). Have you tested? You could test today, theoretically it would be 10 DPO.

Good luck! I similar thing happened to me last month, and I got pretty excited about it. I have really regular periods, so I figured it had to be implantation. I had one day of light implantion bleeding, then on the day my period was due… it came. I couldn’t believe it, but now I’m onto month 3 of trying. Hopefully your story will turn out different. I wouldn’t try to ponder it too much. Try to take your mind off of it and wait until your period is due to test again- just to keep from obsessing or seeing too many BFN and letting them get you down

kes18 : thanks for the feedback! It’s possible my fertility app is off because it changed the fertile period 2 or 3 times based on my cm entered. My periods were actually relatively normal until I got sick in July and then I was a week late (not ttc then), and I’ve been getting longer cycles ever since. We started ttc in August so since my cycle got screwy, AF comes later and I always get my hopes up it’s a wee little baby in there. I kind of thought it was maybe too early for the bleeding but maybe, just maybe not? Haha. I tested this morning and got a BFN so I’ll try again next week or so.
mgbser : aaw you poor thing 🙁 I know, it sucks to get what you think are symptoms only to be wrong! Especially if you have a regular cycle. I guess mine would be line of irregular now but werentt up until July. I hope you get your positive soon!! Fingers crossed 🙂 I’m going to wait to test again maybe next week if AF hasn’t visited me yet.

Elrodien : Thanks! To be fair, I’m only in my third cycle now, which I know is not long compared to most on here. But for someone who loves to plan ahead, it is kind of driving me nuts! I know that there is only like a 25% chance each month of getting pregnant, so the odds are against you in just 2 months, but with all the health class scares still ingrained in my brain, I feel like a failure for being anywhere near a man without protection and still not pregnant… haha. Hopefully soon- I’m a teacher, so I REALLY want a summer baby. Good luck to you!
